  • Darlington Partner Kerry Anne

    Kerry Anne
    Salon Owner

    I have worked for TONI&GUY since I left school, starting as an apprentice in the Darlington salon, moving to the Middlesbrough salon where I progressed to become a Technical Director and Salon Manager.

    In 2018 I reopened the Darlington salon and with the support of my husband Jeff, I feel as though we have created a very family friendly salon which delivers the highest of standards you would expect from a TONI&GUY Salon.

    I want TONI&GUY Darlington to create a customer experience that is equally as good as the technical service delivered by our team. Averaging 10 online reviews a month with a 4.91% out of 5% rating on Service, Value, Results, Cleanliness and Atmosphere shows we are going some way to achieveing that!

    I am also a Technical Director in the salon, specialising in all forms of colour.

  • Darlington Kim

    Style Director & Senior Technician

    I started my career at TONI&GUY Darlington and moved to TONI&GUY Durham for a couple of years before returning to my "roots"!

    I would like to thank my clients who travelled to Durham and stayed with me whilst I relocated to Durham. I also welcome all my previous clients and new ones back to Darlington and hope to see you all soon.

    I enjoy both cutting and colouring and have a very bubbly character.

  • Emma Costello Darlington

    Style Director Director & Senior Technician

    Emma is returning to the salon shortly.

  • Jonathon Darlington

    Senior Stylist & Senior Technician

    I started my career in hairdressing, straight from school before moving to a group of salons in South Africa, where I worked for 18 years. When I returned to the UK I wanted to work for a company that was passionate about the industry and working with Kerry Anne in TONI&GUY Middlesbrough certainly offered me that.

    When Kerry Anne mentioned she was going to reopen TONI&GUY Darlington, I had no hesitation in asking to join her and help her build a reputable hair salon, based on a great customer experience.

    I have won lot's of hairdressing competitions throughout my career and had my work published in magazines. What i really like is transforming people's styles and see the buzz they get from a totally new look.

    I specialise in both cut and colour.

  • Jacqui Darlington


    I trained as hairdresser in 2012, putting myself through the qualification without being associated with a salon. Once I had qualified, I met Kerry Anne and she was brutally honest with me, saying to make it as a TONI&GUY stylist I would need further education.

    So balancing bringing up 4 children and going through TONI&GUY's internal qualification process in their Edinburgh academy, I can know honestly say Kerry Anne was correct!

    I am a stylist who loves chatting to and getting to know my customers, whilst making sure I give you all the advice and tips to look after your hair at home.
